Council eyes 0.5% income tax hike Credit for residents working elsewhere, cost reductions yet to be determined By JEFF DONAHUE ThisWeek Community Newspapers

While Bexley City Council still has some details to resolve, it appears voters will be asked to increase the city income tax by 0.5 percent in November. Yet to be determined is the credit Bexley residents who work outside the city will receive and the exact amount of cost reductions that will be enacted to help overcome deficits projected over the next five years. “Given anticipated changes to the way the state disburses local funding,

as well as multiple years of the city’s income being relatively flat despite natural inflationary pressures on expenses, our only option is to either make tangible cuts to Ben Kessler services or to seek a new revenue channel,” council member Ben Kessler said. “With little exception, residents who have come to us on our finance issue have expressed a desire for the city to continue to provide robust police and

safety services, and to continue to provide the quality and caliber of services that help to make Bexley a desirable community.” Kessler said that Mark Masser scenario led him to recommend the tax increase and a more aggressive approach to cost reductions. “In light of this, I proposed that we go to the ballot with a 0.5-percent income tax increase, bringing our rate to 2.5 percent,” he said. “I also proposed

that we cut expenses more aggressively than would be necessary to simply balance the budget, in order to gain some ground on our financial standing in the event that the estate tax funding source is lost in 2013. I threw out a target of $1 million in cuts, as opposed to the $400,000 in cuts that would be necessary to simply balance the budget in combination with a 0.5-percent tax increase.” While council member Mark Masser expressed surprise at the $1 million figure and doubted it could be achieved, Kessler said if the city administration

and city employees buy in, it could. “It is my belief that with concerted effort, the city could obtain this level of cuts without tangibly reducing city services, but I don’t dispute that in order to do so we will need a united and determined city government and we will need our employees to come along with us as partners in the effort,” he said. “While not impossible, the sort of environment needed to realize these savings will be very difficult to obtain.” Kessler also asked council to conSee TAX, page A2

Columbus School for Girls’ Enri Small and Rachel Young share a moment in the hallway as they pick up their roses prior to the start of the commencement ceremony on June 9 at the school.

Diplomas awarded to 62 students during CSG graduation Sixty-two young women received their diplomas June 9 during graduation ceremonies at the Columbus School for Girls. “It is a magical day,” said Alyssa Ashbaugh, Class of 2008. “ You have worked so hard and anticipated the day for a long time, and finally you are standing there in a white gown, holding a dozen beautiful roses thinking ‘here comes the rest of my life’”. Dr. Terrie Hale Scheckelhoff, Associate Head of School, has participated in many commencement ceremonies at the school and each is special. “The Columbus School for Girls Commencement is a timehonored tradition at the school for over 112 years,” she said. “The pageantry and ceremony

provide a treasured backdrop for our community to gather together to celebrate the seniors and their achievements.” Student Council president Sam Wobst, addressed her fellow classmates and guests by saying she and her classmates have anticipated the chance to take their places in the seats under the big white tent for a long time. “We are certainly prepared to face what comes next,” she said. “CSG has taught us so much. In fact, it has taught us more than just biology and history and geometry. Today our diplomas not only signify our master of British literature and chemistry, but they serve as a testament to Sammy Ramey and Helen Isaac wave to lower music school teacher Pat Stevens as they wait for the start of

Craig Halliday, vice president of the Bexley City School District Board of Education, has announced he will not seek re-election in November. Halliday was elected to the board in 2007. He served as the board representative on the school district’s Technology Roundtable and the Bexley Athletic Board. “My decision is based solely on what is best for my family and me at this time,” Halliday said. “The last three and one-half years have offered me much insight to the opportunities and challenges that public school districts face. I will leave the board a bit less naïve about the issues encountered by both board members, administrators, and teachers, and yet I will leave confident in the knowledge that the many attributes present within the Bexley City School District throughout its history will remain.” Halliday works as a financial adviser for Wells Fargo Advisors. He and his wife, Erika, have two children in the Bexley school system. A 1985 graduate of Bexley

High School, Halliday holds a bachelor’s in history from Colgate University and a master’s in finance from Craig The Ohio State Halliday University. Three seats on the board of education will be open in November. Board President Joan Fishel has not announced her intentions. Also open is the position vacated by the resignation of Diane Peterson, to which Susan Zanner was appointed. At the time of her appointment, Zanner said she would not run in November. Superintendent Mike Johnson praised Halliday for his service to the district. “With his background in finance, Craig has been a valuable asset in steering our district through some uncertain economic times,” Johnson said. “His insights kept us focused as we determined how to overcome a loss of revenue on several fronts. His business acumen will be greatly missed.”

Doremus has received five military awards including two Silver Stars, the Legion of Merit with Combat “V,” the Legion of Merit, and the Prisoner of War Medal. In the evening, the Bexley fireworks celebration at Capital University begins, also sponsored by the Bexley Celebrations Association. Formerly held at the high school, and according to Tim Madison, chairman of the evening activities and fireworks committee, the fireworks display wasn’t much to see. “They were these little fireworks,” he said. “One would shoot up and you would wait 10 minutes and another one would shoot up.” The evening will be one of patriotic celebration for Bexley. Madison said local restaurants will have a presence, and there will be games for the kids — all on the Capital University front lawn. Admission is free and the evening starts at 5 p.m. Local restaurants will serve food until 9:45 p.m. Madison and his committee

DIPLOMAS were sure to only include Bexley restaurants. He said there will be no trucks or trailers like a street fair, only tables in booths. A rock wall and old-school games like corn-hole and carrythe-egg will entertain kids. A large arts and crafts section with face painting will also be available for the children. Like last year, Madison said there will be the dodgeball game that is “unbelievable to see and probably the biggest dodgeball game ever.” Last year nearly 100 kids, all in sixth grade or older, took part in the game. For the adults two Bexleybased bands will play. Music in the Meadow begins at 5 p.m. playing orchestra music. Big Rockin’ Blues Band starts at 6:45 p.m. playing blues style music. Ben Franklin will be in attendance sharing historic tales with the kids. At 8:10 p.m., the Citizen of the Year award will be presented to Susan Quintenz. She has played a major role in the Bexley Farmers Market, the Main Street Guidelines Committee, the Heritage Fund (now the Bexley Community Foundation), Community Clean-up Day and the Bexley Beautification Fund. Following this presentation the main attraction, McGuffey

Lane, will perform until the Bexley High School drum line leads attendees to Capital’s soccer field for the fireworks presentation, which will be accompanied by music. Students from Bexley High School will sing the national anthem. The evening is almost 100 percent provided by private donations, according to Madison. The city of Bexley gave $4,000 and Capital University contributed $2,500. The chamber of commerce kicked in $1,000. “These are tough times,” said Madison. He added that the donations show “Bexley has people that care about the community. If you come you will see how special of an event it is.” Madison said the event is volunteer-run and he and his 15 committee members are still looking for volunteers to help set up and tear down the stage. The B.E.A.T. Bus will provide free shuttle services from 5 to 11:30 p.m., running every 15 minutes (except during the fireworks show), picking up every 15 minutes from Cassingham Elementary, Maryland Avenue School and the Columbus School for Girls Drexel Avenue lot.

Westbrook was the student council president for her class. Westbrook focused her speech around a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt, “The future belongs to those who believe n the beauty of their dreams.” Westbrook told the graduates that their greatest challenge now is believing in the beauty of their dreams. “This is a class of diverse, talented, and generous young women whose leadership will be missed,” said Mary Ann Leonard, Senior Class Advisor. “This group of students has been awarded over $5 million in scholarship money to top colleges based on academics.

TAX Continued from page A1 sider making the tax increase a temporary four-year issue, citing the uncertainty of the status of the estate tax and the local government fund. “It would be prudent in my opinion to be ready to lower the rate if the state-controlled funding model unexpectedly improves,” he said. Kessler said his suggestions were only starting points offered to stimulate discussion on the issue. “I’m very open-minded to alternatives,” he said. “The auditor, for example, favors a slightly tweaked credit model which would be advantageous to the city in the event that other municipalities where our residents work end up raising their tax rates.” Some council members were opposed to the concept of a temporary tax issue, and the feasibility of making the higher level of cuts Kessler proposed. “I understand all of these concerns, and I believe that we will come to a consensus on how to best move forward over the next couple of council meetings,” Kessler said. A first reading of the income tax issue was scheduled for council’s June meeting. “As we discuss the nuances and advantages of the income tax credit levels, etc., the ordinance language may be amended prior to final passage of the ordinance,” Kessler said. “I would anticipate that we will pass the ordinance by the July 12 council meeting.” Kessler said he is not calling for major cuts to existing city services. “I believe that the city has cut a lot of costs over the past few years and explored all options, and that even as further efficiencies are found in certain areas, the overall paradigm is the same,” he said. “Despite our best efforts, we cannot offset the financial burden … without tan-

gibly impacting the services being provided to residents. “To be perfectly clear, this is a voter decision. We are passing an ordinance that will place this issue on the ballot, and ultimately it will be the voters who decide whether this tax issue is appropriate.” Council member Jed Morison said the city has no choice but to go to the voters. “Bexley administration and staff have done an excellent job of reducing expenditures these past several years,” Morison said. “With the anticipated loss of state funding and estate tax revenue, it is important for our voters to have the opportunity to consider an income tax initiative to preserve basic police, fire and community services. “For Bexley to be successful, we need good schools and for the schools to be successful, we need solid city services,” Morison said. “I believe our residents recognize this. I will support an ordinance to place this question on the November ballot, recognizing the city has not requested an increase for many years.”

Commentary & opinion School notebook

New Bexley graduate looks back on ‘journey’ At around the age of 15, my classmates and I started down a new path: High school. New friendships formed, thousands of interests sprouted, personalities morphed and above all, we changed. I’ve got to say how cool it is to look back over the years and see the same faces but totally different people. My fellow graduating seniors at Bexley High School have not only impressed me with their tremendous accomplishments, but with their support for one another during our journey together. I witnessed this incredible support right when I came to Bexley High School and immediately fell in love with our school. Even though I had to have been the alltime worst football player, so bad that the ball would slip right through my hands far more often than I caught it, I would still hear my teammates yelling, “Let’s go, Soll.” I hope they realize just how great a gift a little support can be. By never giving up on me, they made me unafraid to fail on the journey ahead. Later, I decided to run cross country. Even though I was a new team member and was not on varsity, when I missed a day of practice, all my friends would come up to me and ask, “Evan, where were you?” This was not just a team, but also a family. At the endof-the year banquet, Coach Acton did not just say, “He ran hard” or “She broke 20 minutes,” he told us all “We’re very happy to have had you with us this year.” On the academic journey, many of our great adventures came from classes like Honors World History with Mr. Featherstone. Coming into class hearing movie scores or Death Metal music made every day a hallmark in our life journeys. How many teachers do that? I have no clue, but I’m sure this

was a factor in triggering more than 30 students to be at a midnight A.P. Euro study session come senior year. EVAN In addition SOLL to finding fellow travelers, I ventured on my greatest journey yet of self-discovery. I have always loved exploring and learning about the world but never would I have developed such a love for learning had it not been for my teachers. And textbooks were just the launch pad. From there, I was inspired to take off. I began to pick up books on history, astronomy and countless other new subjects of interests. Gosh, learning can be such a blast. However, it doesn’t get to be a breathtaking ride until you break away from the course and do additional exploring. As I think back on my Bexley journey, I realize that you never

get good at something if you avoid it. If you expand your horizons, you’ll be able to see so many new and unimaginable worlds. So be a great traveler in the world ahead of us: Be curious…ask questions…enjoy the journey…it is a lot more important than the destination. Our next adventure in college or somewhere else is swiftly approaching. I want to thank you all for being there to help me. Whether it’s been a “hello” in the hallways or a lengthy conversation, knowing all of you has greatly enriched my life and travels. Each one of us will take his or her own path, but remember that we can always be there for each other. I cannot wait to hear from you guys about all the amazing things you’ll be seeing and doing. All right everyone: Let’s show the world what we’ve got. Evan Soll, president of the Bexley High School Class of 2011, spoke these words at his commencement ceremony on June 5.

Investigation continues Blues & Jazz Festival offers into Bexley bank robbery Olde Gahanna Creekside

talent galore on five stages By MARLA K. KUHLMAN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

More than 90 hours of entertainment will be offered from wellknown blues and jazz musicians from central Ohio and across the nation during the 13th Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival on Friday through Sunday, June 17-19, in Olde Gahanna. The Gahanna Convention & Visitors Bureau is presenting the festival. GCVB executive director Karen Eylon said attendees should expect the usual high-caliber musicians, with the weekend lineup offering exceptionally storied resumes. For the first time, two nationally acclaimed blues headliners, Bill “Watermelon Slim” Homans and James “Super Chikan” Johnson, will perform. The Jazz headliner is trumpeter Pharez Whitted from Chicago. Homans, an Oklahoma guitarist, singer and harmonica player, has a long and varied list of sanctioned blues awards to his credit and songs that deliver his signature style, with revelatory and memorable phrases. Johnson, from Mississippi, plays hand-painted/hand-made folk art guitars. Homans, who once farmed watermelons, is a former forklift operator and long-haul trucker who taught himself to play an upsidedown, left-handed guitar while lying in a Vietnam hospital bed. A winner of 2008 Blues Music Awards (album of the year and blues band of the year), Homans released “Okiesippi Blues” on June 7, featuring co-headlining partner



Johnson. Drawing on the driving, rhythmic sounds of Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry and John Lee Hooker, Johnson writes lyrics culled from his former life as a trucker and his current life as a resident of the Mississippi Delta. The Clarksdale, Mississippibased, guitarist melds country blues, funk, rock and straight blues. Following the commercial and critical success of his 1997 debut album, “Blues Comes Home to Roost,” Johnson has toured and performed throughout North America and Europe. His latest CD is “Welcome to Sunny Bluesville.” The man born James Johnson also hand-paints each of his instruments with scenes of the Delta. The duo will take the blues stage beginning at 9:15 p.m. Saturday, June 18. Whitted, the son of singerbassist Virtue Hampton and nephew of trombonist Slide Hampton, once taught jazz trumpet at Ohio State University (1993 to 2000) and was a fixture in Columbus’ Dell, Barrister Hall, the 501 Jazz Bar and Lindey’s. He is director of jazz studies at Chicago State University. Whitted’s latest solo album is “Transient Journey.” He will pair with Liquid Crystal Project for a set of jazz and hiphop fusion beginning at 9 p.m. Friday, June 17, on the jazz stage. Columbus hip-hop and R&B musicians and singers J. Rawls, BJazz, Charles Cooper and Rob Riley comprise the Liquid Crystal Project, which infuses fundamental jazz with elements of hip-hop. Also performing will be the award-winning Urban Jazz Coali-


tion and the Columbus Jazz Orchestra. Others to be featured on the jazz stage are as follows: • Columbus Jazz Orchestra, 3 p.m. Sunday. • The Tim Cummiskey Duo, 1:30 p.m. Saturday,Acoustic Alley. • Anna and the Consequences, 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Acoustic Alley. Other blues performers include the following: • Bryan “Braille Blues Daddy” Lee, 9:30 p.m. Friday, blues stage. • Mikey Junior & the Stone Cold Blues, 7:15 p.m. Saturday, blues stage. • Sean Carney will head up two special events during the week of the festival.

By JEFF DONAHUE ThisWeek Community Newspapers An investigation conducted by the Bexley Police Department has led to the arrest of one of two men suspected in the June 10 armed robbery of the Huntington Bank branch at 2631 E. Main St. According to of the F.B.I., two men staged a “takeover-style” robbery of the bank at approximately 10:17 a.m. According to information released by Harry W. Trombitas, special agent with the Columbus F.B.I. office, one of the men, Henry B. Moore, Jr., 21, was taken into custody at the Alvis House, 1755 Alum Creek Drive, Columbus, at about 11 p.m. that evening.

He has been charged with one count of aggravated robbery. A second suspect, identified as AnHenry B. thony C. BarMoore rett, 48, is currently wanted for his role in the bank robbery. He also has been charged with one count of aggravated robbery. Authorities think a third person may have been involved as a getaway driver. Bexley detectives executed a search warrant at 1088 Hallidon Ave. in Columbus, where the getaway vehicle was located. They

found evidence from the robbery in that residence. Investigators are asking for the public’s assistance in Anthony C. locating BarBarrett rett, who is described as a black male, age 48, 5’10”, 175 pounds. His last known address was listed as Caldwell Place in Columbus. “We are also asking for anyone who has information about the robbery, or the identity of the possible getaway driver, to contact the Bexley Police Department at 614-559-4444,” Trombitas said.

Heart palpitations are not unusual in children, teens Many children experience a racing, pounding heart or “skipped” heart beats at some point in their lives. Some also report that they can feel these symptoms in their neck. These are known as heart palpitations. Though these palpitations can be a strange feeling, parents should remember that they are not necessarily an indication of something more serious. There are a number of factors that may influence someone’s heart rate and rhythm, including exercise, stress, caffeine and certain medications (such as those to treat asthma or heart conditions). Some kids may simply notice their own normal heart rhythm and wonder if it is normal. Sometimes, though, palpitations can be an indication of an abnormal heart rhythm. The vast majority of these rhythms are not life-threatening in otherwise healthy children. There are a few types of abnormal heart rhythms, also known as arrhythmias. Tachycardia arrhythmias are charac-

terized by a rapid heart beat, but it is important to realize that a healthy child can easily get his or her NAOMI heart rate above 160 KERTESZ beats per minute with exercise. Sometimes, a heartbeat is simply early. This is a premature contraction. Heart arrhythmias can be lifelong or temporary. They can also be congenital, which means that children are born with it. A child does not have to be born with a heart defect to have a heart arrhythmia. In fact, many children experience arrhythmias and have normally formed hearts. You should consult you primary care physician if your child experiences palpitations. The physician will evaluate the frequency and intensity of these palpitations, your child’s medical history and that of your family. In many cases, treatment is not necessary.

Job fair for veterans slated for June 23 By KEVIN PARKS ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The hold music at the Loveland headquarters of is blaring patriotic songs. It’s only fitting for a company that was founded in 1998 by former Marine Capt. Drew Myers. The next RecruitMilitary Opportunity Expo will take place on Thursday, June 23, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Ohio Stadium. “The event is being produced by in cooperation with the American Legion and is intended to help our recently returning troops and other veterans and service members and their spouses with employment, entre-

preneurship, and educational opportunities,” according to a statement from the firm, which is based near Cincinnati. “A lot of solid companies” will be represented at the event, RecruitMilitary director of events and national accounts Robert Walker said last week. More than 35 “veteran friendly” companies have signed on, Walker said, with more expected to join in. These include Waste Management, Verizon Wireless, COTA, the Secret Service, FedEx and the Ohio Department of Public Safety, according to the director of events. The event is free for military veterans and their spouses.

Here at the Heart Center at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, our comprehensive care includes a thorough medical history and potentially an electrocardiogram (EKG). In addition, we offer portable monitors that can record your child’s symptoms. These can be worn anywhere from one to 30 days, or only when your child experiences palpitations. Some of these monitors are the size of credit cards and can be carried in your pocket. They can record a tracing of your child’s heart rhythm, known as an ECG, which can then be shared over the phone with your cardiologist for evaluation. Our Heart Center is ranked among the best in the country and offers comprehensive care for all kinds of pediatric heart conditions.

Track & Field

Seniors fueled Cardinals’ run to success By SCOTT HENNEN ThisWeek Community Newspapers

The St. Charles Preparatory School track and field team experienced success in the Division I state meet June 3-4 at Ohio State, and coach Al Hostetler hopes the Cardinals can build on it next season. Senior Chris Quinn finished third in the 1,600 meters in a program-record 7 minutes, 47.53 seconds, and he joined junior Stevyn Spees, sophomore Will Herriman and senior Colin Merrill on the 3,200 relay that finished second in

7:47.53, also a program record. “This really was my first real postseason in high school,” said Quinn, who will be a preferred walk-on at Notre Dame in the fall. “Last year, I was on the (3,200) relay that made it to regional, but I didn’t compete in an open event. This is the first year I’ve made it past district running as an individual.” St. Charles tied Beechcroft and Copley for 13th (14 points) at state behind Cincinnati LaSalle (36) as 78 teams scored. Spees also finished 11th in the 400

(49.5) at state. “Stevyn is a diverse athlete who could do well in the (800) and (1,600), as well as he does in the 200 and 400,” said Hostetler, who completed his seventh season as coach. “He’s a total athlete and the sky’s the limit for him.” At regional, which concluded May 27 at Pickerington North, the Cardinals tied Big Walnut and Pickerington Central for 15th (21) behind co-champions Westerville North and Thomas Worthington (37 each) as 39 teams scored. Spees finished second in the 400

(48.79), while Quinn was fourth in the 1,600 (4:20.87) and ninth in the 3,200 (9:45.75). The 3,200 relay of Spees, Herriman, Merrill and Quinn was second in 7:52.22 as the top four advanced to state in each event. Senior Ryan Burdine was a regional-qualifier in the shot put but did not compete so he could attend graduation. In the district 1 meet, which concluded May 21 at Hilliard Bradley, St. Charles was eighth (48) of 16 teams as Thomas (87) won the title. St. Charles won its third consecutive league title and fifth in 10 seasons

in the CCL meet, which concluded May 14 at Columbus School for Girls. The Cardinals scored 124 points and were followed by DeSales (116), Hartley (90), Watterson (83) and Ready (73). Quinn won the 3,200 (9:46.36), 1,600 (4:30.38) and 800 (2:00.87) and was a member of the winning 3,200 relay (8:28.25) with sophomore Thomas Krajnak, Herriman and sophomore Connor Bowman. Quinn scored 32.5 points in league meet. See CARDINALS, page B3


Athletes learn through sports For the 17th consecutive summer, I have chosen to ask some of the top central Ohio high school athletes who will be seniors in the fall to share their thoughts on a variety of topics. Enjoy the summer and enjoy hearing from these talented young people. LARRY As in the LARSON past, the first question is: What have sports done in making you the person you are today? Jake Blankenship, Gahanna, pole vault: “Without sports I wouldn’t be anything near what I am today. Sports keep me very active and I have been that way throughout my life.” Jimmy Gammill, New Albany, football: “Sports have helped me learn to overcome challenges and adversities. Sports have also shown me that you need to work hard to achieve your goals. For me, sports are a way to form friendships and I have found that teams strengthen bonds between people because you have worked so hard together.” Napoleon Bell, Hartley, football and wrestling: “From sports I have learned discipline and the true value of being selfless. A team can only be successful when no one is concerned with who gets the credit.” Mary Wells, Westerville South, bowling: “Sports have improved my self-confidence and helped me stay motivated. Also, sports have taught me how to win and lose gracefully and have taught me time management.” Faith Washington, Reynoldsburg, track: “Sports have been a benchmark for me in my development. They have created discipline in my life, especially from the mental side of things. I have learned that you have to work hard to get things done both in the classroom and in sports workouts.” Michela Paradiso, Upper Arlington, soccer and basketball: “Sports have brought out the best in me by allowing me to be competitive. I absolutely love playing soccer and basketball with a passion. I can’t imagine my life without the opportunity to compete day in and day out.” Chase Delande, Hilliard Davidson, football and wrestling: “For me it is really simple. Sports have made me a disciplined kid and a hard worker.” Austin Cuervo, St. Charles, golf: “Sports have taught me how to discipline myself through practice and dedication. Sports have taught me respect and honor, to honor those greats in front of us and to respect them and their accomplishments.

Myers, senior class made mark By PAUL BATTERSON ThisWeek Community Newspapers

Doug Welsh wasn’t sure if senior Charlotte Myers was a Division I college prospect when he first took over as coach of the Bexley High School track and field teams last season. But after watching Myers win the 400 meters in 55.87 seconds in the Division II state meet June 3-4 at Ohio State, Welsh no longer has any doubts that she can compete at the Division I level. “I knew she had innate ability. I’d see some things that would make her a strong runner at the next level and some other things I wasn’t sure about,” said Welsh, who stepped down as coach at the conclusion of this season. “What she did (at state), she showed she is definitely a Division I prospect. She has that competitive edge.” Also at state, Myers, a Miami University recruit, teamed with seniors Abby Fagin and Kendra Wilson and freshman Regan Detwiler to place seventh in the 3,200 relay (9:27.86) and teamed with senior T.T. Siler, junior Emily Winnegard and sophomore Eva Jerkins to finish 14th in the 400 relay (50.43). The girls team scored 12 points at state to tie three other teams for 18th behind

champion Hartley (47). Bexley lost eight seniors in Fagin, Myers, Siler, Wilson, Rahel Adugna, Jade Brannan, Jeanette Klamforth and Elisa Mathews. “There are a couple of us who have really pushed each other all four years,”

said Wilson, a four-time state qualifier. “It’s nice we could finish out our senior year (at state).” “This group of seniors is kind of amazing,” Siler said. “We came in as freshmen and made the track team ours. We’ve been working together to build

a great track team.” The seniors helped Bexley place third (111) in the MSL-Ohio Division meet May 10 and 13 at Heath, behind champion Granville (164) and Heath (136) and ahead of Columbus Academy (91), Licking Valley (53), Whitehall (48), Newark Catholic (32) and Lakewood (25). The Lions then finished seventh (38) in the 26-team district meet that concluded May 21 at Hamilton Township behind champion Hartley (111), before placing 12th (19) in the regional meet May 26 and 28 at Welcome Stadium in Dayton behind champion Hartley (82). “I was worried about senioritis with the girls team,” Welsh said. “They never showed that. They hung together, stayed tight and at the end they were right there competing at the state level. I have to give them credit.” Among those expected to return are Detwiler, Jerkins, Winnegard, juniors Abby Arace (distance) and Tyler Holliman (discus), sophomores Lindsey Mathews (middle distance), Emma Myers (sprints) and Katie Witting (distance) and freshmen Lissy Schmidt (sprints) and Kennedy Walton (discus).

When asked last December to reflect on his team’s run to the Division IV state championship, Hartley High School football coach Brad Burchfield said his players rallied around one another after two regular-season losses and didn’t “fracture.” Despite losing a 16-member senior class that included the state’s co-Player of the Year in running back Noah Key, Burchfield has seen that same attitude throughout the offseason. “I’ve got real good leadership,” said Burchfield, whose team beat Chagrin Falls 34-13 in the Division IV state final

on Dec. 3 in Massillon’s Paul Brown Tiger Stadium. “Our kids have worked hard and bought into what we’ve been trying to do. “Every January we sit down with the entire coaching staff and always try to evaluate our depth, and on every team you’re going to have good kids graduate. That’s always a key issue. On our offensive line, we’re

losing five players who started at some point, but if you look at the great programs, they usually have veterans across the offensive line. I think the offensive and defensive lines are areas you can work on.” Replacing a player like Key would be daunting for any program. Last fall, the University of Toledo signee rushed for 2,885 yards and 42 touchdowns on 338 carries, had three interceptions and averaged nearly 17 yards on kickoff returns. He is one of five players expected to play collegiately from the 2011 class along with twoway linemen Malcolm Branch See HAWKS, page B2

St. Charles planning to have ‘stride year’ By SCOTT HENNEN

“We wanted to kind of fine tune some things that we are running,” he said. “It’s our third year together as a coaching staff and I look for this to be a ‘stride year’ instead of a building year. We want to get our system running well. “We have been working hard in the weight room and we have seen lot of growth and development, and that’s a key for us to get better. We want to develop our system of spread offense and see how we can get the most from it. That comes from watching and figuring out which offensive schemes and sets work best for us. We’re looking extensively at game films to see what made us successful last season and things we need to improve.” Brooks Wagstaff, a 6-foot-2, 215pound linebacker entering his senior season, has added 20 pounds of muscle to his frame during the offseason to help improve his on-field performance. “Right now, I have been working five days on and five days off in the weight room and have added speed work to go with my lifting,” he said. “Last year was my first extensive var-

As St. Charles Preparatory School football coach Jeff Pharion prepares his team for summer workouts, he expects some refinement heading into the 2011 season. The Cardinals lost several key players from last season, when they finished 5-5 overall and 0-2 in the CCLSilver Division and reached the postseason for the first time since 2002. They lost to Uniontown Lake 41-14 in the opening round of the Division II playoffs. St. Charles lost its two primary offensive threats in 2011 graduates Joe Spahr and Jourdan Wickliffe. Spahr, the starting quarterback, led the team in rushing with 963 yards on 179 carries and scored six touchdowns. A second-team all-district selection and University of Dayton signee, he also was 94-for-179 passing for 963 yards with five touchdowns and four interceptions. Wickliffe was first-team all-district as a defensive back and had four in-

terceptions, but he also was a dual offensive threat. The Eastern Illinois signee caught 18 passes for 276 yards and five touchdowns and rushed for 546 yards and 10 touchdowns. “I think out biggest question mark would be that we had lot of great seniors that we will have to replace,” said Pharion, a 1986 St. Charles graduate. “But that’s typically the case with most high school programs.” The Cardinals won their first five games but lost their final four in the regular season. A game against Hamilton (Ontario) National Arts College was canceled because the school ended up not fielding a team last season. But Pharion expects his team to continue to improve as it enters its third season in his system.

sity game experience and I was a little nervous. But this year, as a senior, I won’t have a problem with being a vocal leader.” Pharion said Spahr likely would be replaced by Nick DeJaco, who completed all three of his pass attempts last season as a junior for 47 yards and a touchdown. “Nick is a four-year program guy and is a sizable kid at 6-1, 185 (pounds), but isn’t the running threat that Joe was,” Pharion said. “But he does bring other things to the table. He has the qualities needed to be a successful quarterback.” Gunner Francis is expected to be a key returnee in the backfield. Last season as a junior, he rushed for 265 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries. His best performance came in a 24-21 win over Sandusky on Sept. 24, as he ran for 165 yards and two touchdowns (71, 61) on four carries. “Gunner will be getting a good chunk of the carries for us,” Pharion said. “He had a good game against Sandusky and we expect that he will have more than one of those games this coming season.” Pharion expects left tackle Nick Fran-

co to return for his senior season and anchor the offensive line. The defense is expected to be led by Wagstaff and linebacker Phil LaFleur, who was named second-team all-district last fall as a sophomore. According to Pharion, his team has yet to schedule any 7-on-7 passing events but will participate in several during summer camp. “We may invite a school over in late July, but we’re heading to a camp at Ohio Northern for a few days in July and we’ll probably do 7-on-7s with four or five schools who are at the camp,” Pharion said. The Cardinals will be making the jump to Division I this fall. “Being Division I means nothing to the regular season because our schedule is set for the next two seasons and we play a rigorous schedule,” Pharion said. “We had good amount of points for having five wins and we just have to be able to win the right games against the right teams.”

graduate, was lost for the season in week four. Running back Warren Ball, an Ohio State recruit who should be one of the team’s top players as a senior this fall, also battled injuries most of last season and was limited to 634 yards and 12 touchdowns in eight games. The Stallions also lost quarterback Nick Gentile, two-way regulars Sam Borghese (TE/LB), Santino Cua (OL/LB), Evan Kendrick (RB/DB), Tony Moore (OL/DL) and Michigan-signee Chris Rock (OL/DL) to graduation. Enough underclassmen saw significant action last season, however, to leave Wiggins feeling good about the experience he has returning. Juniors Jalen Noble (DB) and Alex Washington (OL/DL) are others along with Ball who could take on leadership roles in the coming season as DeSales looks to bounce back from a 5-6 record, its first losing season since 1974.

DeSales •Coach: Ryan Wiggins, fifth season •2010 record: 5-6 overall, 1-1 (second) in CCL-Silver Division •Final 2010 computer ranking: Eighth in Division III, Region 10 •Outlook: In at least one respect, a 14-7 loss to eventual state champion Watterson in the first round of the Division III playoffs prompted the Stallions to take a different approach to their offseason. What, after all, were the Stallions going to do with all of the extra time they had? A 35-17 victory over Cleveland Benedictine in its regular-season finale helped DeSales earn a state-best 17th consecutive postseason berth, but its loss the next week meant that it was out of the playoffs before the second round for the first time since 1999. The longer offseason, though a disappointment at the time, hasn’t been a complete loss, according to coach Ryan Wiggins, and the extra conditioning time could come in handy this fall as the Stallions hope for better health. Defensive back Kevin Marth, a 2011

As often has been the case over the years, the CCL can lay claim to the cliché that it might be small, but it most definitely is mighty. Hartley and Watterson are coming off state championships in Divisions IV and III, respectively, and DeSales (Division III) and St. Charles (Division II) also made the playoffs. Ready endured its first losing season since 1998 last fall, but all six of its losses came against opponents that won at least eight regular-season games. In this installment of the Friday Night Live: Spring Edition, we’ll examine the conference from central Ohio that has the fewest number of teams but has as rich of a tradition as any throughout the area, if not the state.

program the last several years. In addition to the charge coach Dan Bjelac believes his program received from winning its second state title, the Eagles should enter the coming season with confidence that they can move the ball. Even with new starters at quarterback, wide receiver and most spots on its offensive line, Watterson has a head start with its running game. Mario Dean and Isaiah Murray enter

•Coach: Dan Bjelac, ninth season •2010 record: 13-1 overall, 2-0 (first) in CCL-Silver Division •Final 2010 computer ranking: First in Division III, Region 10 •Outlook: Other than the misstep of turning the ball over six times during a 13-12 victory over Akron Buchtel in the Division III state final last season, the Eagles perfected the hard-nosed, grindit-out approach that has signified their

their senior seasons after rushing for 285 and 342 yards, respectively, last season. Patrick Bookman, who enters his junior year after rushing for 102 yards and one touchdown last season, also returns at running back. Andy Elberson will begin his junior season as the favorite to take over for quarterback Patrick Rhomberg, a 2011 graduate who passed for more than 1,300 yards and rushed for nine touchdowns last season. Elberson passed for 85 yards and rushed for 61 in limited action last fall. The Eagles will spend much of the summer piecing together a new defense after several key players, including T.J. Gilles, Hunter Maynard, Matt Redfield and Brad McCurdy, graduated. Maynard signed with Bowling Green in February and Redfield will be a preferred walk-on at Bowling Green. Gilles, who started on the offensive line and contributed defensively, and McCurdy are expected to play for Ohio Dominican.

Ready •Coach: Larry Wolf, 14th season •2010 record: 4-6 overall, 0-1 (second) in CCL-Gold Division •Final 2010 computer ranking: 21st in Division V, Region 20 •Outlook: The youth movement that was forced on the Silver Knights last season has continued this offseason. Although some of what was a large

and talented freshman class won’t be playing the sport as sophomores, the team’s strength still rests in their younger classes after they lost only 11 players to graduation. That has put a sense of urgency into offseason workouts for Ready, which is coming off a 4-6 record for its first losing season since 1998. Coach Larry Wolf and his staff have spent time during the offseason figuring out how to shore up a defense that struggled last season. After the Silver Knights won their first two games, they gave up an average of 37.3 points in their six losses. By season’s end, freshmen Kelly Culbertson (S) and Patrik Garren (DT) each were starters. Junior Brandon Gutheil, who played tight end last fall, is a player Wolf hopes can provide leadership on the defensive line. The biggest bright spot as Ready puts together its offense over the coming weeks is that quarterback Bo Hardy and kicker John Wright should be among the returnees. Hardy enters his senior year after passing for 1,043 yards in his first season as the starter. Wright, who also will be a senior, finished with 42 points and made special mention all-district. Those two players should help Ready compensate for the loss of 2011 graduate Demetrius Clark, who rushed for 1,233 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Quarterback Austin Underwood, two-way lineman Joey Moore and linebacker Drake Jones also graduated after helping the Hawks finish 13-2 last season.

back to David Key and Michael Thomas,” Burchfield said. “Noah’s great season showed kids what they can do. Since the 1970s, Hartley has always had great running backs and we think we’re going to have a great running back again this season. Our next two running backs are Ja’Waun Woodley and Jarrod Zang, who had 1,000 yards.” One portion of the summer Burchfield is looking forward to is when he’ll take the team to Saints Peter & Paul Retreat Center in Newark for three days of three-a-day practices in July. “We structure our summer with lifting hard early in the morning throughout June and then we go away in July,” Burchfield said. “Our offseason is probably no different than anybody else’s. Everybody thinks they’re going to be good.”

Bexley scored 30 points in the 14-team district 2 meet to finish ninth, behind champion Eastmoor Academy (131), and scored nine points at regional to tie three other teams for 22nd, behind champion Dayton Dunbar (78). “This is my only coaching superstition — it’s bad luck not to have good athletes,” Welsh said. “The boys have been solid all the way with the way they practiced, accepted their workouts and worked as hard as they could. They had such a good rapport with each other and they supported each other.” The Lions lost 10 seniors in Scott, Denzel Clark, Ropaki Gwynn, Jared Lucas, Micah Muller, Neal Pohlman, Evan Porter, Seth Ringel, Adam Schleppi and Evan Soll.

Brought to you by:



Setting one home apart from the rest is always a challenge for Realtors and home sellers.That’s why this summer many sellers and agents are looking to the great outdoors to catch the buyer’s eye. “Today,a homeowner can demonstrate their style outdoors as much as indoors,” said Jerry White, executive vice president of Coldwell Banker King Thompson. “Welldesigned outdoor living spaces help homes stand out from the competition especially in the warmer seasons.”While the inside of your house may be spick-and-span, don’t leave the outside untouched. Here are a few tips on making the most of your outdoor space: • Highlight what you have: For some it might be a pool in the backyard, others have a great outdoor kitchen, beautiful vegetable garden or party-friendly deck space. Highlight the selling points of your outdoor space by keeping it well maintained and staged with flowers, furniture and other accents. If you don’t have a stand-out feature to speak of, create one. Set out a pair of Adirondack chairs under a shady tree or arrange a picnic scene on your patio to add some charm. • Add some color: Planting flowers in the front and back yards can bring an eyecatching pop of color to the look of your home. Gardening isn’t an inexpensive endeavor,but it takes time, so consider planters and other quick fixes that can deliver without much expense or maintenance. • Keep it simple and neat: Just like inside our homes, it’s easy to over do it in the backyard, especially with a smaller space. Clean and simple are winning strategies. Also talk to your Realtor about how your yard stacks up against homes on the market in the area and discuss ways to maximize its potential as a selling tool for your property.
